One thing - why is the musical entertainment named "The Jerome Gray Trio"? Seriously, those guys need a more islander-type name!



Did Tapua play??

That's the group that played...is that what they were named? I could have sworn the CDs up front said Jerome Gray Trio, I thought it was strange. Hmmm maybe a little too much champagne....

At one point I looked back at the full room behind me...with all the men in Hawaiian shirts wearing leis and all the nicely dressed women and families, it looked just like the postcards of the Tiki palaces seen in The Book of Tiki and Tiki Modern.



I picture this scene in my head and am envious. That is great you were there to participate and soak it all in, good for you!. When my wife and I stopped by for this brunch a couple weeks back, only a few other tables were occupied. I felt it a shame not more people were there to enjoy the atmosphere, entertainment and great food.

We did get there kind of late so maybe we just missed the crowd?
Or, maybe Kona’s brunch is gaining popularity?

Cheers,
Sofa King

I think a big part of it was that it was Fathers Day...we called Saturday night for reservations and they told us they were booked solid. We took a chance and just showed up. Hopefully the pace keeps up....gotta keep it open, there's a wedding reception coming up there next year!
